Best Cabinet Maker Musical (Concert Version)


“The Best Cabinet Maker” is an original musical uncovering the hidden history of Chinese cabinet makers in Melbourne's Little Bourke Street during the late 19th to early 20th century. Set against a backdrop of solidarity and infused with melodies of traditional Chinese instruments such as erhu, guzheng, dizi and yangqin, this musical is a poignant tale of resilience and unity that echoes across time. See actual cabinet makers’ artifacts from the period after the show.

At interval, enjoy a cocktail at the Dragon Bar or Chinese tea and mooncakes (additional charge).



Event is suitable for all ages. Event is performed in English only.
